The ultrasound machine produces high-frequency sound waves which stimulates blood circulation and cell activity, accelerating the healing process. It is used extensively in the treatment of sports injuries such as sprained knee and ankle ligaments. A professional footballer would probably receive this treatment a couple of times a day to treat such an injury to get him back playing as soon as possible. Ultrasound is also used to break-down scar tissue and persistent bruising.
All of our physiotherapists are trained to use ultrasound as part of their treatment and we have ultrasound machines in all of our clinics.
Physiotherapists use electrotherapy equipment to ease pain, decrease muscle spasm, reduce swelling, help break down scar tissue, reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process.
Interferential Therapy - This involves electrodes being applied to the skin in the area of the problem. A specific electrical current is delivered between the electrodes which results in desensitisation of nerve fibres, which causes a decrease in the pain level and muscle spasm.
All of our physiotherapists are qualified to use ultrasound and interferential therapy as part of their treatment. We have Ultrasound and Interferential Therapy machines in all of our clinics.
